at the back of the president and political system to bring about change. president obama -- this is not a political time when roosevelt lived in. the labor movements are not as strong. today there was a story about the tea party move -- losing its mojo. we're seeing overreach that has led people to this tipping point moment where millions of people have said enough. the obscene inequality in this country colliding with downward mobility that people feel in their gut, they see it among their family and friends. that has led to this moment where there is the possibility of space. organizers can move into it. we could see some real change. it will not come about through just one leader. >> it helps to have a leader who is effective. >> in traveling with the book, i am reminded about what candidate obamas said when he said i am a were shocked -- rorshack. people bring to him their views of the country, their anger and pain. feel he has done what he could in a system where you have a republican party that was determined to take him down. they did not want to govern with him. m
as forces on the right line up to stop him. >> obama is seeking political victory. >> tonight karen finney and e.j. dionne on the president's historic proposal and the republican pushback. >> just remind everybody, obama is not going to be president forever. >>> hillary clinton takes a powerful curtain call at foggy bottom. >> it's really important that women are out there competing at the highest levels of government and business. >> i'll tell you if she dropped any hints about 2016. >>> plus, the sandy bill passes in the senate. but not before 36 republicans totally disgrace themselves. i'll introduce you tonight to the sandy 36. >>> and it's a modern-day civil rights struggle between workers and management in the state of mississippi. i'll tell you why these nissan employees say they're being denied a voice in the workplace. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching there is more hope tonight for 11 million people who are currently living in fear. >> i'm here today because the time has come for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform. the time has come. now is
when they want to make political hay out of an issue. >> obama is seeking political victory. obama doesn't care about enforcing existing law. so people say why will he enforce anything that is new. >> once again, limbaugh is clearly delusional. one of the reasons we need immigration reform is because there were a record number of deportations last year. president obama has presided over 1.5 million deportations in four years. it took w. eight years to deport two million people. but marco rubio still went on air with the peddler of lies to kick obama on immigration. >> obama is not going to be president forever. as long as the next four years may seem, he won't be president forever. we have to write laws with that in mind as well. >> president obama agrees with marco rubio and other senators on almost every aspect of immigration reform. but republicans are not doing this because they are interested in real reform. john mccain actually told us the truth. they are doing it so they can win elections. meanwhile, our current immigration fiasco takes a tremendous toll. now, listen to some
a healthcare problem and political one. >> bret: bipartisan group of senators and president obama have outline of immigration reform legislation this week. senior political analyst brit hume is here with his analysis of what is right with one of them. why have so many immigrant families from asia done so well in this country? one reason they had to come a long way to get here. it's still a formidable obstacle and screens out the less able and determined. relatively small subset of the population, 6%, nearly half of whom have a bachelor degree. they are in short the people this country needs. this is why one of the most useful part of the immigration reform package rolled out the other day to award green cards to immigrants who old advance degrees in science, technology, engineering and math. we need 120,000 computer engineering jobs a year and we graduate a third of those and many of those leaf the country because the visa expires. 55,000 green cards were awarded bay brandon draw each year to immigrants from countries who previously sent few people to the u.s.. not surprisingly it's known as t
when hillary clinton was seen as one of the most divisive figures in american politics. but after serving four years as secretary of state under her former rival barack obama, for some, that seems to be changing. we return now to my interview with her today in the jefferson room at the state department. as she exits the public stage, for now, anyway, secretary of state hillary clinton is basking in an approval rating of 66%, a lifetime high. but that's not to say she's without her critics. among other things, the administration's handling of the ongoing blood bath in syria remains highly controversial. >> and it's time for assad to get out of the way. the united states believes that president assad should step away. the world will not waiver. assad must go. >> you repeatedly said that president assad needs to go. >> right. >> starting two years ago. >> right. >> and yet, 60,000 syrians are dead and he is still in office. >> right. >> what does it take for america to intervene? >> well, i think we have been very actively involved. until recently, there was no credible opposition co
that something is about politics. they released right before obama was set to give a speech on immigration the white house said oh no, no, we're not worried about that. it wasn't political. but it appears that obama backed off his specific proposals and is going with a bipartisan group that the bipartisan group obviously did that to head off the president to give some credit to the republicans but then why did the democrats play along with that? >> it looks like reviewing a scooby doo. they did this and they did this and they did this. it's framework. it's not legislation. it's not a bill. they got together and discussed things. then you see this outlier of marco rubio. everyone is trying to stake their ground right now where they want to be in immigration. the president is saying if you don't pass anything, you're going to get me. it's the president that we haven't seen other than as a campaigner. >> cenk: paul, what do you think? is this going to work? are republicans going to get an advantage here or be able to neutralize the advantage that democrats have with the latinos by jumping ahe
? >> politically correct? i appear to be. >> president obama's economic plan hasn't worked among african-americans. when you voted for him, 12.7 unemployment. december of 2012, a month after you voted for him again, 14% unemployment. up. okay. hasn't worked. income, black income $32,000 compared to white 55,000. gone down under president obama. hasn't worked. so, you basically said to yourself i'm still going to support the guy even though his economic policies haven't worked for african-americans and pretty much anyone else. >> well, you have only seen me as an african-american, bill, that troubles me. i'm an american. >> bill: ill know that you cited that in some of your criticisms. you said and correct me if i am wrong, that the disengagement of the republican party from the minority community, blacks and hispanics troubled you. >> the economic situation in the country has improved but not enough. >> bill: not for african-americans. not for minorities. >> i'm not speaking as an african-american. i will come to the minority part of my criticism in a moment. but, we have seen a doubling
of the obama administration team. we thought we had a program that was viable, limited, politically and legally realistic. one by way the entire intelligence committee have now been briefed into. to digress for a second, the major mistake we made, and i include myself in this, was in the early years of the program. the existence of the program, it was limited to the gang of 8. i think that was a mistake. by 2006 both had been briefed. we thought it was possible. we thought the obama administration could have continued the program in this limited form, at least maintained it as an option. it did not come to pass. i do not think any less realistically thought they would stick with it. we had not reviewed the executive order. guantanamo was out of our lane. this is a factual flaw in the film. they were saying this is not factually correct. we got a hold of the executive order again. all government will be confined to the techniques in army field manual. my friends and i have talked about this. i said not that you ask, this is not occurring on the executive order. let me offer you a thought. down h
. >>> president obama flew to nevada to make a point today, a politically crucial place to throw his arms against a new path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in this country. our white house correspondent peter alexander has our report from las vegas. >> reporter: the first trip of president obama's second term had the energy of a campaign event. vis issing this high school to build support for immigration reform. >> now is the time to find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants that still see america as the land of opportunity. >> reporter: the president's plan calls for bolstering border security, cracking down on employers hiring undocumented workers, and most controversially allowing 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the u.s. to earn citizenship by paying taxes and passing a background check, among other requirements. >> this is not just a debate about policy, it is about people. >> reporter: mr. obama described a similar bipartisan plan in the senate as encouraging, but republicans are also warning the president that there are limits to thei
'm a trust and verify guy. the history of assumer and barack obama and durbin is always politics. president didn't fully embrace what the bipartisan group of senators said. why am i suspicious? every time he has an opportunity to exploit it, he does so politically. do you this agree with me, that republicans need to proceed with caution? >> absolutely. there are so many complicated parts to this. even if you had trust with all the partners, you would want to pay a lot of attention to detail. look, the president -- you touched on it earlier. there was an unnecessary threat out of the blue. i was reading the text to the speech, he was outlining what he was sort of proposing which was somewhat in agreement and out of the blue he says if you are unable to move in a timely fashion, i'm going to set up a bill on my proposal and insist that you vote it on. that is typical stuff we see from the white house that is completely unconstructive and undermines trust in the white house. >> sean: two reasons i would like to see a bill happen here. number one, nobody seems to be talking about it, i'm afraid
president obama rather get a deal done on immigration or let the issue fester who she republicans continue to get run at the polls by latino voters? this is "hardball," the place for politics. textile production in spain, and the use of medical technology in the u.s.? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipper average. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. request a prospectus or summary prospectus with investment information, risks, fees and expenses to read and consider carefully before investing. and these come together, one thing you can depend on is that these will come together. delicious and wholesome. some combinations were just meant to be. tomato soup from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. duvall patrick has named a place holder to fill the senate seat of john terry. he'd be the second african-american in the senate. tim scott of south carolina, another appointee is the other. it's the first time in history that two african-americans have served in the senate a
a bill or play politics and blowout the republicans? >> you are still with bush. >> obama. >> to your point he wants it quickly. this is a big part of his legacy. >> let's move on real quick. one minute left. gun control issue.here is the committee hearing house on the hill today. nra is going to be there. also mark kelly, gabby give order's husband is going to be there. >> the law enforcement issue is not being addressed. 35% less convictions on guns since the bush administration. here i'm back on bush. and also 76,000 people last year were denied on background checks denied guns. 62 referred for prosecution. they have a point. more laws is that going to cover this thing? and frankly, we're not addressing the mental issues of this. we're putting up the ban date without any adhesive by creating more laws. >> look, it's always difficult to pass gun control laws in congress in the united states. >> even after what happened in connecticut. >> but i think there's a possibility you get more on the background check side. gun shows, that's the biggest freaking loophole. got to solve that pro
rights activists who have been waiting for the obama administration to take action n on the issue. the november election may have been key to moving forward. hispanics supported the president by a two to one margin. >> want to continue being part of the political process and want to win the white house back they need to make changes in terms of their agenda. >> republicans insist tighter border security must happen before movement on citizenship. >> coming up next, a sea change. >> thousands of radio stations about to pop up and you might be able to >>> this is wild. just when you thought everything new was happening on the internet, thousands of radio stations are about to start popping up around your mf -- fm dial. >> welcome back. >> paul is living out a team. >> just listening to some beautiful music. >> he's a classical music dj on a tiny radio station. >> gives local content, you know? people to know are the community. >> it is among the first in a wave of new low power radio stations just legalized by the federal government. they're noncommercial. >> local school board race
of $250. adt. always there. >>> real politics now. as expected president obama called on congress to overhaul broken immigration laws. in a speech he praised a plan unveiled by eight senators. he stressed the similarities between his vision and theirs. >> that's what comprehensive immigration looks like, smarter enforcement, a pathway to earn citizenship, improvements in the legal immigration system, so that we continue to be a magnet for the best and the brightest all around the world. >> president obama also sounded a warning, though, saying the time to act is now, and if congress can't deliver, he's going to step in. >> the foundation for bipartisan action is already in place. and if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. >> bipartisan plan he's talking about comes with some crucial strings that contains provisions for paths to citizenship but only if certain conditions are first met. chief among those making sure the border is secure before any legislative action can take pl
. >> the political argument that is looking at marco rubio. we know it's the number you see on the screen. obama over romney over latino voters. you have the growing latino areas. i wonder if there is a second argument that republicans are considering or ought to consider. that is how they are toned on this and defined the rhetoric and affects non-latino voters. how much do you think this hurt the republican party's brain that it took this long to get to this point on this issue? >> well, the argument is also that when you want compassionate conservatism, it's not just the target group, but also for john latinos. the fiscal conservative who is may not love or hate latinos, but they cringe at the rhetoric. i agree that this is not just an issue about latinos, but softening the general image of the republican party. it's gone so far to the right with the peak of the 2010 tea party movement, that they try to buff the edges out. >> the first thing is border security. with enforcement promises never materialized, that is untrue. the 2007 bill asked for several things that we are super serving or doing mea
political realignment underway in this country. and wliel obama realigns, the republicans are in decline. and they really have three choices. one of which they've seenl to have already gotten rid of. secondly, they can destabilize the economy. that's what they tried to do for years moving up toward the 2012 election. it didn't work. but i think they might try it again. paul ryan on meet the press last sunday sounded very interesting in letting the sequestration go into effect, which we saw today would have bad effects on the economy. third, in lincoln's phase, they could disenthrall themselves. but when you look at what happened to marco rubio in the last day, senator david vitter of louisiana called him amazingly naive. i think the republican party is trapped between what it has to do to succeed and survive and its tea party elements which are going to ghand purity. >> now when you look at cynthia, the fact that american people say clearly that any number opposed support the president's agenda, 53% support same-sex marriage, 62% support a path to citizenship for immigrants. 80% say clim
of political decisions that had been made prior to the obama administration, but also because of the economic crisis and the feeling that somehow america had caused this, and so part of the responsibility i had was to go out, fly the flag, restore that confidence, make it clear that our leadership was intact, to set the table for the pivot to asia, to dealing with the arab revolution, to restoring really close relationships with our partners in europe, looking to enhance the neighborhood in latin america, and on so many issues, whether it was putting together international coalitions with iran and north korea, figuring out what to do with libya that would bring an unprecedented coalition between arab and nato countries, or whether it was just looking down the road at how we were doing diplomacy and introducing new tools into that mix, it was a very different time than ten, 20, 30, 40 years ago. i've kidded our mutual friend, henry kissinger, think how impossible it would have been for him to sneak off to china in the age of cell phones, twitter, facebook, everything else. it is a time that is
, there is a bit of a political divide going on here. just because of the lack there are no politics here i would like to talk about risk versus reward ssments president obama re. prom reflects the mind set that there shouldn't be risk in this world. why you should be taken care of from cradle to grave. to get things in life you have to take a risk. you might get paid and great looking girls. isn't that what life is about is taking a risk? >> what the president is trying to argue and what these guys are saying too is the risk and the reward is not as much in college as when you are in the nfl. this said, they are adults and making the choice to play. there are dialogues out there and they are getting information about the repercussions from these injuries. if that means parents say my son is not going to play football anymore you may see the ncaa and nfl come out to prevent injuries. you look at boxing and the intention behind the sport is to destroy the other opponent to the point is they are so injured. cheerleading has more injuries than football. >> bill as a tumbler has been dropped on his h
media and the sound bites that come out of it? >> it's actually as totally revolutionized political communication. we saw it both in the success of the obama campaign in the fund raising arena and seen it in the ability of people to galvanize around a particular issue. that's what's so important about all of these things, the twitter and facebook. we use it extensively and it's a huge force. >> congressman yarmuth, thanks so much for taking the time. >> thank you, chris. >> as we watch gabby giffords continuing to come in. there is this level of emotion here. and really newtown took it to a level i don't think we've seen before. the parents have a piece in the "washington post," our country needs a new dialogue, one that doesn't follow the tired script of political squabbling. any improvement of our laws should not be decried as an attempt to take away rights. even those who lost the most are suggesting no such thing. >> do we need to see gabby giffords coming in and reminder of these 20 kids? >> apparently we do. there is a strong gun lobby and they oppose these things strongly. >>
't be misled here. here's something this debate is not about, wls obama wants to use immigration as a way 0 club republicans or get a bill. it's not a question. the idea that anyone outside of political partisans believe that the president doesn't want to actually sign legislation now to fulfill a campaign promise is a bit naive. maybe that was the calculus in 2010. it was not the calculus this time. sure the president is using campaign tactics to pressure congress but he wants the legislative win. he already got the political win. it's called a second term. finally, friday is hillary clinton's last day in office. now that her successor has been confirmed, she is talking to the press, including andrea mitchell in a series of exit interviews. yesterday clinton weighed in on what may be the most underreports story in washington, the unrest taking place in egypt right now. clinton stood by one of the most consciousal foreign policy decisions the administration made that gets little little -- the ouster of mubarak. she responded to the head of the army who said that the state could fall part. >
